The Wilderness Systems 2018 Aspire 100 Kayak is a sit-in recreational kayak designed for beginner to intermediate paddlers looking to expand their skills beyond flat water. With a hull made for lightweight agility and beginner-friendly stability, this high-performance kayak excels in slow moving rivers, ocean bays, and (thanks to the integrated drop-down skeg) smooth lakes. As the shorter sibling in the Aspire family, comfort for the shorter paddler is at the forefront of the 100's design. A fully adjustable seat (raising and lowering on your preference), sliding foot braces, and complementing thigh and knee pads all come standard in the well-matched cockpit. The molded in console in front of the cockpit offers a place to stash go-to items, like a cowboy coffee for a morning float down your local lazy river or your camera while you're paddling towards the sunset to get the perfect shot. Bungee rigging across both decks and a covered stern hatch supply more room for your dry bag or additional layers.
